We need a Notification when someone wants us to boost their Train like we have for the ships. I have no way of knowing unless I just randomly look in it.

Alexm2012 Apr 24 2020 12:26 PM

would be great if we could have the crops and certain products upped in the carts i have 10 trains with 10 carts attached which totals 100! 9 of them have the long crops carts even with the 80% bonus the yield no where near enough products its absurd for 35fc per cart to only allow them to transport such a small amount and with now 41 farms its near impossible unless you increase what they are carrying or implement another feature that allows us to gain more. even a tweak with the carts would help raul and devs.

the Seaport Manager has a red light showing that ships are there
Could we have a yellow light to show that there are trains from others at your manager

dofford Apr 28 2020 01:24 AM

Using the Train manager since it was implemented, I have noticed the last 30 minutes, waiting for the trains to come into home base, the time is not updated incrementally. This is a problem as it impacts the turn around time of the trains. If we could know the accurate time the train will be coming in, we could be there as soon as possible and be able to get them back out as quickly as possible.
By the way, the train manager has been a big and important upgrade to the train process.
Thanks in advance for considering this upgrade, as I know you will.

Would be nice if we could Hide trains, and Train paths.

tammyjo408 Apr 30 2020 08:57 AM

please let the train manager show number of trains waiting for a boost. just like the ship manager does. please

Train Manager
I was on my Super Neighbor's farm and it showed I had 5 Trains waiting on me in my Toolbox, BUT it was grayed out, so I had to go Back to my farm to boost them. We don't have to do that with Ships. We can send them on from anywhere. Please make it like that for the Trains also.........

guess who May 04 2020 03:00 AM

Train manager is brilliant accept for one thing.When you open it ,it should open on boost others trains rather than open on your own.At the most you would go into your own once a day on the others you may have to enter numerous times throughout a day.

tammyjo408 May 11 2020 09:56 AM

ships. no matter who I choose in my log. my ships always get stuck. if you someone gets on late then the rest of the log gets behind. why can't the ship hit all ports at once,or just get boosted like the trains do. like trains better than ships.

janelouise May 14 2020 06:52 PM

Can you add soy sauce to either the trains or cargo ships- hard to keep in stock.

pete5560 May 17 2020 02:38 PM

how about hide train option.
how about indicators for when ships trains arrive home

Whoopsidaisy May 25 2020 09:37 AM

Hi, I would love to have the option to decide what crops my trains and ship containers bring me. The items I need most are barely there and many of the items I have no use for or need rarely are placed in the same container as the items I do need. If I were really in control of my shipping I would be hauling two or three time the amount of some crops and not haul others at all. Thanks :)

HatB May 28 2020 04:53 PM

Would it be possible to get trout in the fish car and on the boats?

DeniseDJ May 29 2020 03:31 PM

please add crawfish to the refrigerator car
I have two fish farms and two Cajun restaurants. I am always short on crawfish. Please add crawfish to the refrigerator car. Love the game, spend plenty of money!

Train Manager Improvement
I really appreciate the train manager. That being said, there should be a much needed improvement added to it. My suggestion is that we can see who has accepted our boosts on each individual train. We get generic information at the bottom of our playing screen that tells us a neighbor has accelerated a random train. That just does not add to the functionality in any way.

JohnAlbertini Jun 02 2020 07:57 AM

I regularly work for another farmer who is NOT a neighbor. Why can't we use each other as a port for our ships? Ports must now be neighbors. I don't want to be his neighbor as that would stop me from getting bonuses for working his farms. We ARE FB friends, but not FT neighbors!

ccheney Jun 05 2020 08:27 PM

We already have the mayor working all neighbor facilities and service facilities if we have 2 or more trains with 10 cars each. It would be nice if we could maybe add a third train with 10 cars each and along with the bonus products
have the mayor do it all at one time instead of having to go to the neighbors farm, he works the facilities then we have to leave and come back again for him to refer to service facilities. Do both in one trip instead of two.

Dana1971 Jun 09 2020 06:34 AM

Move while Dispatched
I've ran across this so I thought I would suggest it. My Train is Dispatched and I upgraded a farm and would like to plow it but I have to wait until it returns because I can't move it and it's sitting in the middle of the farm now, LOL

tammyjo408 Jun 09 2020 09:04 AM

remove neighbor requirement from ships. have ship hit 30 ports at same time. for every 5 FT friends that load it shortens the time by 1 day. even with good neighbors log is a pain to get it in correct order. and I bought all the cranes. this way, it won't matter what time of day or night friends get on line and won't hold up the next person.

tammyjo408 Jun 10 2020 09:25 AM

have a one click all on the containers. pita to have to click on 1 container, wait then click on the next until you get all 10 containers done. make it one click does all 10.

BethFB Jun 10 2020 07:20 PM

Is there any chance that the fish container in the trains will carry baits? Like lets say 10,000 baits each since it takes about 12 hours to get 1000 and some people don't have enough fish farming factories to get enough to cover all of their farms.


Sqrl Jun 11 2020 08:12 PM

Please reconsider having ports open by default. I've neighboured quite a few newbies during this lockdown, trying to help them out, and none of them even know FT has ships, never mind that they need to move them on or close their ports. I haven't time to educate them all!

Sqrl Jun 12 2020 02:56 AM

Another thought. When we have multiple ships stuck at the same neighbour's port, it would be great to have the option, once we've skipped one ship, to skip all ships at that port.

Marianne59 Jun 18 2020 10:22 AM

I would like to see Ostrich feathers in de ships container.

AnnaWalls Jun 23 2020 01:21 AM

Why can't we get notifications in the train manager for when our own trains come in?

ccheney Jun 29 2020 12:29 AM

Could we add asphalt barrels to the long tank car?

CeejayF Jul 05 2020 10:09 AM

Cargo Planes?
Since we have trains and ships, how about CARGO PLANES?

Clohar Jul 05 2020 12:39 PM

A tool to load all neighbour trains in our train manager in one touch such as the LOAD ALL we have for ships

Phree Jul 07 2020 09:26 AM

Goods Quantities from Ships
Please could you increase some of the quantities that get delivered by the ships. We have to work quite hard to load all our containers on ships as it means checking in regularly to load each container in turn, then we have to consider the the order in which my ship will visit our neighbours' ports to try to maximize the quantity loaded by neighbours. In return for all this, on some goods that are used up in 10s of thousands in our facilities, we barely get more than 100 of these high volume items delivered, items such as eggs and milk. It would be great if developers would consider this and perhaps increase the amounts of these goods more inline with the amount needed to run our facilities. Thanks for your time, I hope you will take a look at this.

Tiger Jul 16 2020 07:34 AM

In the help menu in the store, for each long container I would like mouseover information for how many of those long cars I own please.

I would like the following added to the long cars please:

Ostrich feathers
Peacock Feathers

Increase of nylon roll, gold nuggets, clay block, mayonnaise, shrimp container, oyster container please.

Whoopsidaisy Jul 18 2020 09:32 AM

Could we have a shipping container that brings in herbs and other produce, say lettuce, oregano, parsley, those types of things? Dump the flowers except for sunflowers and substitute needed produce in the crops, fruit and flowers container?
Thanks :)

Whoopsidaisy Jul 18 2020 09:40 AM

I am guessing that you will add cargo planes eventually (hopefully). Could you please add the option for us to ship what we actually need in the quantities needed? Say put a total limit on the amount shipped but leave What is shipped up to the farmer, not the Mayor. Also have the option to load all cargo at one time and send out like the trains not the ships.
Thank you :)

NJones277 Aug 10 2020 04:21 PM

Can the trains and ships be updated with all the new products that have come out since their inception? Thanks.

pete5560 Aug 18 2020 05:36 PM

option to hide trains

Alexm2012 Aug 18 2020 05:50 PM

wondering if we will get updated trains carts even if we got a butcher cart to carry meat bread one to carry different breads etc ... would be excellent an extra addition of new sets of cars also allow us to have 15 trains not the max 10 unsure why its capped when we pay anyways

Alexm2012 Aug 25 2020 11:52 AM

Meat Cart and Bread Cart for the trains..... and a new function to allow us to load all in ships when loading the containers of our OWN ships the cranes are great for others ships but we need help loading our own especially people who work and still wanna play the game to the limit. :)

normanorr Sep 05 2020 05:45 PM

can we have ships operate the same way as trains when it comes to loading our own ships
one click option to load all containers at once rather than having to wait minutes to load individual containers, a process that can take ages
i own all loading cranes and this makes loading other players ships real easy
would be nice to have the same option for our own containers

jeannine_p Sep 07 2020 12:05 PM

With the addition of letting sn boost trains, this is brilliant!! i suggest, in this same notion, to add the feature to let sn's send ships on the way as well. works just like boosting trains, only it's loading the ships in port.

hurican Sep 09 2020 12:08 AM

hi ........can we get silicon rock added to trains an ships ??
